Reflecting for God

When I see it in the night sky, itís hard to believe itís not the light, but it isnít.

After the sun, the moon is the brightest object in the sky. At certain times during the month, it provides enough light for people and animals to walk in the middle of the darkest night without stumbling.

The moonís brightness is due to its close proximity to earth and also to the sunís blazing energy. But the moon isnít a sun or star. Rather itís just one big mirror reflecting the sunís light from the earthís other side.

John the Baptist-Jesusí forerunner, was well aware he was only a giant reflection of the true light-Jesus. John himself was not the light; he was simply a witness to tell about the light (John 1:8 NLT).

As the sun is the source of the moonís visibility, so God is the source of the light I radiate. I have no inherent light but merely reflect what Someone else shines on me. If I ever think Iím the source of the light, my light will quickly diminish or radiate false impressions like a cracked mirror.

Godís light reflected in me also helps me travel lifeís pathways. Life is tough. Left to myself, Iíll make a mess every time. Godís light-through his Spiritís presence, provides the wisdom I need to make sensible decisions that lead to prudent actions.

But my primary responsibility is to reflect Godís love to others. John wasnít Jesus, but he directed others to him. Iím not Jesus either, but I am responsible for accurately reflecting him to my friends, family, co-workers, and other casual acquaintances.

The sun does an excellent job of giving an undistorted reflection of the moon. Let Godís reflection accurately bounce off you to others.

Prayer: Thank You Father for the awesome privilege of reflecting Your love to others. Enhance Your light in our lives that they might see You precisely through us. www.lovelinesfromgod.com
